Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

RCA F27442 27" TV

The picture on my TV looks really good...color, location, etc...except that the lettering on things like the ticker at the bottom of the screen on ESPN or the score boxes while watching a football game are blurred. They are actually like double vision. The picture is the same, but not very noticable while watching something like a movie. The lettering on the "Guide plus+ Gold", which the TV has, is clear. The lettering on Closed Caption is clear.
I tried adjusting the focus using the "Menu" button and the adjustment on the back, but nothing!
I finally took it to a repair shop. They say that the part it needs is on back order from RCA. I'm trying to find the part myself, but am having a hard time. The number the repair shop gave me is LA7812N...it is an IC Chip. I've been told that I have to "cross reference" that number, but am having no luck doing so.
Can you help me get that part or tell me how to cross reference it?
Thanks!!

I have an RCA model D52W23 tv and the colors are out of line


Do not use magnet on or near this set---

This set is known for convergence problems where picture looks 3 d etc and this is caused by bad connections under and around the high voltage transformer in many cases.

First thing to do is look in menu to see if "Convergence" option is still there or missing----three small parts available as a kit exist to correct that if the option is missing (all are at same place around the high voltage transformer).

Set would have to be taken apart if you are able to check things there---if not most techs familiar with this set can deal with this in the home.


the connections and parts are all right where the high voltage transformer (called a flyback) is located.

typical flyback:

I get that there is no Chroma on something but not sure in what mode or source you are speaking about. Sometimes people have trouble due to a setting being wrong or they use a really cheap video cable which can strip the higher frequency Chroma signal off of the Baseband or Composite video signal. Try a higher grade of video cable- video signals at 10MHz bandwidth do not like to go through cheap audio cables. maybe you could clarify the problem more?

Ticker along bottom of screen for news channels and sports channels is being cutoff along the bottom. That is, the ticker moves right to left and I can read it but the bottom 10-15% of the letters is...


Hi,

I might need a little more detail to solve this problem - I suspect the problem is an incorrect setting on your cable/satellite receiver (assuming you are using one), but let's start with the TV.

Firstly, switch the TV on and select a channel where you can see the ticker. Then press the "FORMAT" button (above the red REC/CONNECT button) on your Mitsubishi remote control. This will change the screen aspect ratio and the current setting will be displayed on screen. Each time you press the FORMAT button the screen size should change.

The screen aspect ratio settings for your TV are STANDARD, EXPAND, ZOOM, STRETCHED and NARROW. Press the FORMAT button repeatedly until "STANDARD" is displayed on the screen. If the ticker is still cut off, you need to change the aspect ratio setting on your cable/satellite receiver.

Please note: If the TV will only allow you to select STANDARD, this is not a fault. It simply means that the aspect ratio cannot be changed on the TV because it's displaying a picture from an external source, i.e. a cable/satellite receiver.

You should then look for a button on the front of your cable/satellite receiver or the cable/satellite remote control marked "FORMAT" or "ZOOM". When you have located this button, try pressing it repeatedly until the ticker is both fully on the TV screen and the picture covers the entire screen.

If you don't have a FORMAT or ZOOM button for your cable/satellite receiver or you are unable to set the picture size correctly, leave the TV set to STANDARD and then reply to me with the brand and model number of your cable/satellite receiver. I will then be able to assist you with finding the correct picture settings and give instructions on how to set these correctly.

I hope this helps - please post back here if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Screen adjustments??


On the remote, if you use the right and left keys on the pad with the OK sign in the middle, it will adjust the screen to several sizes including Cinema, 16:9, 4:3, Zoom, etc. I, personally, use 16:9 because I, like you, need to see the ticker symbols at the bottom. I hope this helps.
